Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What's something you take for granted, that when you stop and think about it you feel truly grateful for?

Water. After having problems with our water recently we were reminded how much we take good clean water for granted and it's something I'm truly grateful for.

2. The color brown-love it or no? What's your favorite shade of brown? Most loved something in your home or closet in a shade of brown?

I like the color brown for a lot of things, though I've never been a fan of the dull browns of November or parched crispy browns of a hot summer.

I do love browns when it comes to clothing, with a warm chocolate shade being my favorite.

3. What's something you're looking forward to today?

I'm looking forward to seeing some friends tonight.

4. The word 'feminism' is not new, but it has been generating all kinds of headlines in recent days and months. What do you think/feel when you hear the word? If you're a woman, do you want to be described as a feminist? Why or why not?

The word feminist leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I don't want to be described as a feminist, choosing rather to be feminine.

To me the word feminist brings a picture of obnoxious, loud, self centered women to mind. While feminine brings a picture of gentleness, kindness, and things more along that line.

5. What's something you personally can't eat without making a mess?

Spaghetti is something I would never choose to eat in public because it is so messy for me.

6. When did you last surprise someone with a little gift or when were you last surprised by someone with a little gift? What was it?

A friend stopped by on Monday and surprised me with several dozen eggs from her chickens. We use a lot of eggs, so I was happy to receive them!

7. Share a favorite quote, saying, song lyric or scripture relating to gratitude.

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

With winter being my favorite season, I am loving the snow that is covering everything. So pretty!


  1. Ooh, what a great quote! I like that one! And I like your distinction between "feminist" and "feminine" - good points. Have a great day!

  2. I really like your quote! I am going to write that down:). Have fun with your friends tonight and have a great week!

  3. Oh, I love your answer to Number 7! And also to the feminist question. Congratulations on the eggs. We use lots here too, a wonderful source of protein and good fats.

  4. Great quote! I'm going to try to remember that one and your perfect distinction between feminism and feminist. Perfect.

  5. I loved your comments about feminism vs. feminine. Enjoy your evening with friends!

  6. I should say water, too.
    Our landlord just had to change our leaky water heater.

    Enjoy your Saturday!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
